I ask this from the perspective of an armchair GM who sees the perfect storm, a stellar upcoming draft class and a middling team with two aging stars nearing the end of their contracts. The thing is, at least your team has enough grit and character to make the games watchable if you do sell off Kipper and Iggy. As an Oil fan, the 09-10 season was flat out painful watching Nilsson, POS and the like just coast and avoid contact.
What could Iggy fetch? Kipper? I'm thinking each would net a 1st and very good prospect, in a draft that may be comparable to 2003. On one hand I want it to happen to watch Feaster eat his words, on the other I want to see legit battles of Alberta as well as western road trips be referred to as death valley again.
The chances of a rebuild is slim in my mind since the ownership does not want that but i could possibly see a sell off of the stars but it would be hockey trades so I see a "retool" but not flat out rebuild.
As for Iggy it pains me to say this but i think we may have a situation where we will see the ownership seeking playoffs and he loses another year at getting the cup he deserves
